Haiku – Difficulty

May the truth you seek
Rise out of difficulty
Find your Middle Ground

Every experience we have in life is an opportunity to witness. To step back, observe and attend to.

Beneath the discomfort and suffering is something precious that wants to be known.

In times of difficulty, pause and be with whatever comes up. Give it space so you can feel it fully.

As you come to this place full of hard and hurtful edges, let yourself soften.

Open your heart to it, and let compassion melt the negative thinking and resistance.

Find your Middle Ground and the truth and love within.

    • So true Karen. It can be too much of a scary place to open our hearts when we are hurting so much. Yet, opening to the small difficulties and starting from there has helped me on this journey. ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’›

    • It does make us appreciate the most important things in life and treasure them even more. Good luck with the treatment Helen. I’ll be thinking of you and sending love and healing light your way. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™โค๏ธ


  2. “Difficulties are always blessings if we know how to face them.” (The Mother). I hold on to this now as I enter the second phase of treatment for brain tumour. I have so much to learn from this experience and this itself excites me and I believe Grace will give me the time I need to see the blessings of this.

  3. It did it again Val, I’m not getting your posts, I thought it had become a little quiet ๐Ÿ˜€
    I shall do the re-follow thing and see if that stirs something up ๐Ÿ˜€
    And maybe its the ‘middle ground’ that is required, to observe what is really happening…a great post, thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ˜€
